Live from Kathmandu: Finals from Dilip

 

Folk art custom pet art hand painted on metal drying on the streets of Kathmandu

It is forever a pleasure to pick up art from Dilip's studio.   His stair is covered with charming, bright and colorful art.  He dries them, and passersby stop to admire and comment on them.

Folk art portrait of an Australian Shepherd hand painted on metal in Nepal

This portrait of Shadow, an Australian Shepherd, is almost done.  Dilip had painted Shadow's lovely blue eye brown, and then I pointed out that Shadow's left eye is blue.  Then he painted it bright blue!   So this is almost finished, but he will paint Shadow's eye correctly as the lovely light sky blue that it is.

If you would like to have your dog (cat, horse, chicken, bunny, bearded dragon, etc.) immortalized on metal here in Nepal, now is the perfect time to order for holiday gifts.   I am in Nepal right now and ready to give your pet's photo to 3 different artists.

You choose the style, the color, what you would like the sign to say...

I am accepting order until Thanksgiving, November 28, 2019

This hand-painted art form is fast disappearing in Kathmandu, as it already has in most parts of the world.   I pay fair trade wages, the artists get to paint again, pet lovers get a choice of three paintings for each commission, and I get to help Nepali artists make a living.   Everybody is happy.   Rescue dogs from America get to rescue artists from Nepal!

HOW TO ORDER

To order, please send me a photo of your pet.   I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of 3 paintings and three artists will get work.   Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint.   These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.

While I am in Nepal, your pet will be featured on the Danger Dog Blog, as I stop into the artists' studios and document the works in progress.

Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front.   If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case.   Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!

Send your photo to ampage1@gmail.com or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.

Let's keep these artists painting.
